Mapping out Dupont Circle

When it comes to location, Kimpton Hotel Palomar Washington DC simply can’t be beat. We sit just west of Dupont Circle on P Street NW, in between 21st and 22nd streets. Our actual address tucks us just beyond the swirling circle, yet exciting action always awaits outside our welcoming, cozy living room (if you can tear yourself away). We are located just over a block from the Dupont Circle Metro station and a few miles from Union Station. (Flights can be booked into three major airports, too.) Nearby bus lines, Zipcar hubs, and Capital Bikeshare stations present other transport options, encouraging farther-flung explorations of the multi-faceted capital. If you want to explore on foot, enjoy strolling the tree-lined streets of Embassy Row and nearby Georgetown.

To contact the concierge desk, please call (202) 448-1800. You may also use our online pre-arrival concierge service to arrange for special amenities, arrangements and recommendations upon your arrival.
